Are you a lead teacher interested in learning more about the latest science on mind, brain, and education to share with educators in your community? The International Mind Brain and Education Society (IMBES) wishes to bring together educators and researchers at the biennial conference. By connecting researchers and teacher leaders, our goal is to foster conversations to promote research that aligns with the needs to educators, develop a shared understanding of the implications of research, and create tools for sharing this research with education professionals.
With the support of the National Science Foundation, IMBES is pleased to offer lead teacher conference subsidies. Subsidies will help cover the conference and membership fees and travel costs of lead teachers wishing to attend the biennial IMBES conference, to be held June 18-20, 2020 at the Hôtel Delta Montréal by Marriott in Montreal, Canada.
More information regarding the conference, including the schedule and line up of keynote speakers, is available here.
IMBES will provide conference registration and a 1-year membership for awardees. In addition, awardees will receive $1,200 to put toward travel costs, including transportation and hotel stay.
Eligible applicants include lead teachers and education professionals in the United States. Educators at all grade levels (preK-12) and in all subject domains are welcome to apply!
Applications will open on March 7th and are due by Monday, April 20th.
Applicants are asked to submit their resume and a 300-word maximum statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Teacher-Educator Conference Application".
Applications will be reviewed by a subcommittee of IMBES board members, and attendees will be notified no later than May 1st.
